In light of the environmental factors that affect the airline industry this Study will focus on the traditional Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental, and Legal Analysis, often referred to as the PESTEL Analysis. PESTEL analysis is a tool that is used to analyse an organisation’s macro-environment. Political Environment The incident of 9/11 has affected the airline industry adversely. The number of tourists to different countries has immensely decreased due to the fear of safety and security issues. On the other hand countries have put measures in place such as strict visa policies and border controls in an effort to combat terrorism attacks.
The NTSB found several reasons as to why the crash occurred. As stated earlier in the paper the conditions at the destination airport were forecasted to be poor visibility and possible icing. When dealing with icy conditions it can be hazardous to aircraft. This is due to the fact that ice on a wing spoils the airflow over it. This causes a loss of lift, and more drag, which can cause a stall to occur at higher airspeeds.
However, there is in many people, at least subliminally, the fear of plane crashes. This fear finds its justification mainly in the often sensationalist manner in which the media treat airplane crashes. Plane crashes are always a catastrophic event, since according to their nature, often many deaths are recorded. If you look at but considering how many traffic accidents occur daily on the streets of German cities, which also call for fatalities in part, the risk of plane crashes appear but in a very other dimension. While
Abstract The accident on McDonnell Douglas DC-9-82, N215AA of 1991 is a good example of an aviation accident that occurred majorly due to human factors. This paper aims to analyze the main causes involving human factors that lead to the crash. The two core factors associated with the accident include; fatigue and situational stress. Both crew members sustained long duty day that exceeding the maximum waking hours. Additionally, the prevailing weather conditions placed them in a stressful environment.
Case Study 1: Ethics in Action the PATCO Strike Giovanni Tutiven West Georgia Tech Labor Management Relations – 41163 Instructor: Christy Russell 27/01/2018 The case of the PATCO strike revolves around air traffic controllers whom belong to an organization called (PATCO) which stands for Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization. They play a very important role since they control the traffic of planes that flow in and out which can be risky since the slightest error can make a plane crash which puts lives at risk. So, there is already much stress that comes with the position of being a traffic controller. In this case we have an ethical issue since the air traffickers of PATCO in 1970s want to go on strike. However, due the fact that they are employees for the U.S federal government at that time in the 1900s it is illegal for unions whom work for the federal government to go on strike.
Employees’ output is subpar and does not conform to the expected or stipulated levels. This has adverse effects on downstream automakers because they must contend with delays in the supply of side mirrors. It also results in missed deadlines, which erodes customers’ confidence in the organization. Sluggishness among employees also results in a general rise in overheads (Beer & Collins, 2008). For example, the organization must airlift completed parts to customers to shorten delivery times in the face of production delays.
Threats: FlyDubai just like any other business faces threats to its existence. For instance, with the global financial crisis and later the Eurozone crisis, the number of travellers has significantly reduced due to economic hardships. This has affected the profit levels of the airline as well as slowed down its growth prospects. The airline also faces intense competition from other low cost airlines forcing it to extensively invest in product differentiation to counter the competition. This is an expensive
Airlines were responsible for the large USD17 billion of economic losses globally. The returns generated by airports are weighed down by the US, where airports are owned by local governments and funded by tax-efficient municipal bonds. They are not run to generate a return in their own right, but to bring wider economic benefits. Outside the US, airports generally produce higher returns, often aided by price regulation.” (CAPA,
Now lets put a light on the disadvantages of Globalisation. The main reason for the downside of globalisation is that it distinguishes between social class ans status. This leads to political and social uneasiness and financial unreliability that will restrain growth. Many of the world’s poorest people do not have access to basic technologies and public goods. They are eliminated from the benefits.
